A female teacher at a private school was of the view that such events help educate the students through different activities. “Those who remain only in the four walls of their classrooms fall behind those whose education includes hand on skills outside their classrooms,” she said.

During the exhibition qirat, naat and speech competitions were also held among the students and shields were awarded to the winners.

Nazakat Mehmud, a student of the diploma of associate engineering programme at Keman Institute of Management Sciences, said exhibitions like these give an opportunity for students to showcase their work. “We’re lucky that our work got selected for demonstration at such a platform where thousands of students are participating,” he said.Exptess turbuni.
